Restaurants near Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium, Outdoor Dining: The Second Line is chef Kelly English's more casual, New Orleans-influenced spot that's right next door to his Restaurant Iris. As with Iris, English took an old Midtown house with lots of character and a nice porch and space for outdoor dining. English calls Second Line "casual, honest, delicious and true" - with the true being true New Orleans comfort food, not the blackened versions of fish and chicken that he considers tourist food. So the menu is full of po'boys - catfish, shrimp, roast beef and other options - snack food including fried oyster salads, meat pies and more; and side dishes, or what is termed groceries on the menu - french fries, cheese grits, "fancy ass" coleslaw, and more. Food is served up on baking sheet-style trays lined with waxed paper, or small cast-iron style ramekins which is novel. Local beer gets its due here, with loads of local craft offerings on tap.
Local Expert Sally Walker Davies Says:
Best for Restaurants near Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium Because: Second Line's crafty cocktails, casual bites and great patio keep that post-game festivity in full swing.
Best for Outdoor Dining Because: The patio at Second Line is about three times as big as the inside dining space, and includes a long bar, too.
